Pattern prints are great and tropical prints even more so. From throw pillows to bedroom walls, having a tropical print creates a summery feel that will work well all year round not just in the warmer months. Pair a nice print with shades that complement the wallpaper yet bring a subtle feel. Using a tropical print in your home is quite easy. The key is designing with the bold print in an area that needs a brightening effect, such as a quiet corner. Doing so will bring a pop of color and pattern diversity.

Another nice detail for your interior that can bring a touch of a tropical paradise is a collection of cocktail glasses. Bringing the cool taste of the tropics to every cocktail served in the Tropical Drink Glasses by Williams Sonoma is easiest it can be. This gorgeous collection of barware features hand-blown green glass wrapped in hand-woven sea grass sleeves for an authentic beach-side vibe. All you need now is a slice of lime, a drink umbrella and someone to clink glasses with.
